ST LOUIS, August 12, 2020 – Inc. magazine today revealed that ACERTUS is No. 4834 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. This is the second consecutive year that ACERTUS has made the list. ACERTUS, a tech-driven vehicle lifecycle solutions company, has corporate headquarters in South St. Louis County and was co-founded by St. Louis native, William Billiter.
“What an honor to be recognized once again by Inc. Magazine and ranked alongside so many remarkably innovative businesses,” said William Billiter, co-founder and CEO of ACERTUS. “I am incredibly proud of the work we are doing to drive the future of automotive logistics and want to thank our incredible team for their continued focus, unwavering commitment to excellence and relentless drive to deliver.”
ACERTUS is a leader in the automotive logistics industry and leverages powerful, proprietary technology to deliver complete, end-to-end solutions throughout the lifecycle of a vehicle including vehicle transport, vehicle home delivery, title and registration, storage, care and maintenance, compliance services and more. Its drive to continually elevate the industry standard is exemplified by its three-year revenue growth of 60 percent.
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists, as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
